12:19 pm
think you're going to like it. the winds have cleaned us out. no low clouds, no fog. but take a look at our pretty breezy areas, sausalito gusting up to 28. san francisco gusts as high as 31. sfo at 26. redwood city and emerald hills winds up to 27 miles an hour. breezy conditions are expected for the coastline and also for the bay for the afternoon. but sunny to mild temperatures in today's highs from the mid- 60s at the coast near 70 at the bay and near 80 degrees inland. for tonight, patchy fog expected to develop along the coast and also for the bay. but well inland another cool night with temperatures dropping down to the upper 50s as mostly clear conditions are expected. here's a look at some of those temperatures today. lower 70s in fremont and milpitas. 72 in santa clara. 70 in sunnyvale. 70 in mountain view. and the lower 70s in palo alto and also in redwood city. these temperatures are still

12:22 pm
>> i wouldn't think so, no. it? >> i think whatever makes you >> reporter: researchers found it's true that calories do disappear but only in your mind. roughly 1,000 individuals primarily women were shown four unhealthy meals and were then asked to calculate the calories. but every time a healthy item was added to the unhealthy meal, presto change-o, the perceived total calorie count dropped, especially among those who are watching their weight. for example, chili with beef was thought to contain 690 calories but add a small salad without dressing to the meal and the perceived total calories dropped 11%, to 621 calories. a burger alone was thought to contain 734 calories. add a few celery sticks, women thought they were eating 619. that's nearly 16% fewer calories. dr. kim mulvihill, cbs healthwatch. >> i like that. people are subtracting. dr. kim reminds us, adding any foot identify em to a meal is going to increase not decrease calories. and eating healthier foods, that's a must. but be realistic and learn how

someday rose mary. the most popular way to buy rosemary are rosemary branches. they are great with chicken, all types of meats. they lend themselves to enhance many flavors. when you buy your rosemary like this, this is important because it is fresh, you want to keep it that way, you want to make sure all the rosemary is nice and mint green. that is so important. when you bring the rosemary homing, store it in the refrigerator right away. it's only going to last you about two to three days at the very most. any longer than that, they will start to dry up and lose all that wonderful flavor that rosemary has. when you use it, just pull your hands down the bottom just like this and they will start to fall down. look at all the rosemary leaves falling apart. i using the branch like a shishkabab and secure. it enhances the flavor. i'm tony tantillo, your fresh grocer. and always remember to eat fresh and stay healthy. rosemary has to smell beautiful to stay healthy. >> tracy is making me laugh because she has seen this last story. finally this afternoon, a dog
